Brief Answer:
It is normal. Nothing to be concerned about.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. What you mention is not a varicosity but a tortuosity. You might be aware that the size of penis can increase on stimulation. Surely enough the veins need to be long enough not to get pulled and torn in the process. The extra length is accommodated in the form of tortuosity which you are interpreting as varicosity. It is normal and nothing to be concerned about. It will not go away and would not require surgery.

Too much of nothing is good. I would insist on maturbating in moderation and not let it amount to addiction.

Let me know if I could help further.
